The COVID-19 pandemic has caused Henderson Area Rapid Transit (HART) to make some adjustments to its current routes starting Monday, Nov. 23.  

On Monday, HART Transit will begin operating at 6:30 a.m. and end at 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

The last routes will leave the transfer point at 4:30 p.m.

HART will also be halting the 6 a.m. Weaverton and Eastgate routes.

In an effort to protect passengers and employees, HART also will limit trips to essential ones only, including transportation to work, grocery/errands, and medical appointments.

According to HART, the route changes come due to decreased ridership during the months of the COVID-19 pandemic as citizens continue to social distance. The new schedule is subject to change.

Questions on the changes should be directed to Transit Superintendent Brenda Wethington at 270-831-1824.

A line of sustained to heavy rainfall is expected to push northeastward across the Tri-State between the hours 7AM and 11AM Thursday morning; be sure to pack an umbrella early tomorrow, as that timeline will fall during your morning commute Thursday. After the initial line of rain exits east of the region, we'll continue to see periods of scattered rainfall throughout our Thursday afternoon and evening. Unfortunately, the same can be said for our Friday - lower pressure slowly spinning eastward will stall the rainfall and prolong our precip chances as we head into Friday afternoon and evening. It looks as though those chances of rainfall throughout our Friday will be sporadic at best and shouldn't lead to any significant disruption to those Friday night football games.
